Indoor or outdoor, the sky's the limit! Southwest Greens Charlotte provides custom design mastery for golf greens in a wide selection of sizes and configurations for every client.

Artificial golf greens demand a high level of professionalism for design and installation. Since our beginnings in the golf industry in 1996, we have truly refined the art of golf construction. Breaks, bunkers, undulations and turf blending name just a few of the design elements key for authentic looking and rolling golf greens. With so many additional architectural features to think about over a more basic artificial turf, golf green construction cost averages from $20 to $25 per square foot, more or less depending on region, accessibility and features.
The superior quality of the materials we use is a crucially important factor in creating a top-of-the-line golf green. Our superior products provide the rich, natural green look of genuine grass as well as the gentle feel and true performance characteristics free of nylon and other typical materials used in many artificial golf greens.

Will the artificial turf deteriorate over time? How long-lasting is the turf?

Southwest Greens Charlotte's earliest installations are 20 years old or older and still embody the vivid green color and texture of natural grass. Our UV-resistant artificial grass products look and function like new because they are crafted to withstand heavy traffic, harsh weather conditions and temperature fluctuations for year-round use. All installations come complete alongside a one-year workmanship warranty and manufacturer's warranty that includes fading.

Our artificial grass is engineered to be used and is highly recommended in busy areas or for long-term sporting purposes.

In most cases, artificial grass is disposed directly into landfills, taking up precious space. Shaw offers a better alternative through the Green Edge Recycling Program. Once artificial grass is removed, we are prepared to repurpose it in several different ways including sheet goods, rugs, carpet backing, mats and more.

Sand infill from the synthetic grass product is mechanically removed from the turf, separated and then put through a cleansing process. The filling can then be used in future fields or used as materials for different products.

Shaw has recycled upwards of half of a billion pounds of carpet since 2007 and opened two state-of-the-art recycling facilities — Evergreen (nylon 6 recycling) and Re2E (Reclaim to Energy). Today, Shaw offers hundreds of fully certified Cradle to Cradle flooring products.

Our synthetic turf products necessitate very little upkeep. For most artificial grass applications, using a leaf blower and water hose to dispose of lawn and pet debris is sufficient to keep the surface clear. For golf greens, normal upkeep by your local Southwest Greens Charlotte representative every 12-18 months is recommended; we will guarantee smooth putts with consistent check-ups that include rolling the green and inspecting the areas around the cups for any adjustments.
Professional Southwest Greens Charlotte engineers and installers are the only personnel qualified to design and install our synthetic turf materials. DIY purchases are available with consultation but will void any installation warranty.
